“These stars recognize Arnaud Donckele’s years of hard work and his high standards. He is a genius alchemist who takes us on a journey full of emotion and poetry. He transforms each of his creations into something exceptional and never stops reinventing himself to continue to surprise us every day and take us on a journey around a dish that is always unique,” said Olivier Lefebvre, CEO of Cheval Blanc Hotels.
As the Courier reports, Cheval Blanc Paris opened its doors last fall in the historic Art Deco building of La Samaritaine. LVMH’s first urban hotel faces the Quai du Louvre, near Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Louvre, in the heart of this great city.
Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills is about to open in the heart of another great city.
In this case, the renamed location is the corner of Rodeo Drive and South Santa Monica Boulevard, anchoring the city’s Business Triangle. Like its Parisian counterpart, Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills bears the signature of American architect and designer Peter Marino.
While Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills is still in the midst of the city’s approvals process, plans for the 1.3-acre plot include an ultra-luxury 115-room hotel, rooftop pools, retail outlets at the LVMH retail on the ground floor and of course fine dining.
Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, hinted exclusively to the Courier what awaits us.
“Honoring Plénitude at Cheval Blanc Paris with the highest possible rating from MICHELIN so soon after its opening, along with universal recognition for our world-class hotel, demonstrates Cheval Blanc’s uncompromising commitment to quality, l Excellence and unparalleled hospitality. This is the Cheval Blanc standard. We look forward to the opportunity to offer this level of premier service and sophistication on Rodeo Drive at the Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills project, our first location in the United States. United,” Arnault said.
Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills will be in good company, joining venues in the Maldives and St. Barths, as well as the aforementioned Paris and St. Tropez.
